I'm Sofie Louise Dam, a cartoonist and illustrator working in the studio Kulkælderen in Copenhagen. I graduated with a BA in Graphic Storytelling from The Animation Workshop in 2017, and since then I've been working freelance on picture books, comics and illustrations.

Stur Stur Nummer, my first picture book in collaboration with author Kim Fupz Aakeson, was published by Gyldendal in February 2018 and nominated for the Danish Ministry of Culture’s illustrator-award in 2019.

This Land Is My Land - A Graphic History of Big Dreams, Micronations and Other Self-made States, my first graphic novel together with author Andy Warner, was published by Chronicle Books in May 2019.

My second picture book with Y/A fiction writer Sanne Munk Jensen, #Parisjetaime, will be out on August 29, 2019.

I love collaborating with authors and illustrators, so don't hesitate to get in touch if you have an exciting project in mind.
